R.J. Palacio
“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

R.J. Palacio
“Kinder than is necessary. Because it's not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

“Part of life was never getting a chance to say all that you should to someone before they are gone.”
Robert J. Wiersema, Before I Wake

J.R. Ward
“Lassiter came in alone, likely because Doc Jane had returned to the Pit. And the angel was naked as a jaybird… and just frickin’ fine. No bullet holes, no scars, no contusions.
“You keep looking at me like that and you’d better buy me dinner afterward.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Reborn

Beth Revis
“Eldest thinks power is control, that the best way to be a leader is to force everyone into obedience. Holding Amy against me, I realize the simple truth is that power isn't control at all-power is strength, and giving that strength to others. A leader isn't someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to other so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.
This is what I've been looking for since the first day I was told that I was born to lead this ship. Leading Godspeed has nothing to do with being better than everyone else, with commanding and forcing and manipulating. Eldest isn't a leader. He's a tyrant.
A leader doesn't make pawns-he makes people.”
Beth Revis, Across the Universe
